Two Questions, Movie Reviews

It seems like I get the same two questions about our current President of the United States on a very frequent basis. The first question is what are we going to do about what the president is doing to our nation, and the second is, why are people following him when they have always been the direct opposite of him in political, business, and religious philosophy? My answer to the first question is a real simple one, go to the polls in the next election and vote him out of office. That is what we do in a democracy and why our form of government has lived on for so many years. Now to vote him out of office the voters must do the same thing he did, organize the campaign to raise huge sums of money (he raised $745M) and then make sure to go to the polls and vote. President O also did the other smart thing in that he was recognized as a Black- American, not a Half White American, so then he could appeal to the Black-American population of around 60 million people which he did and they voted for him and sealed his victory. Since coming to this realization I have also studied how this might be accomplished in the next election by whoever his opponent might be and I have come up with the solution. There needs to be a drive to combat the above mentioned 60 M voter base and that can be done by going directly to the senior citizens(meaning all over 65) which numbers around 51 million now. If you go ahead and take in the over 60 population you would probably gather the remaining votes. So what will happen is the opponent will have to gather these folks up into a hard charging group and then they will offset his power base of voters. For the opponent to really make his case he/she will make it a campaign theme that for the first time in 35 years social security payments will not be given a cost of living increase in 2010, so that will be blamed on President O (even though it is not his fault, but who will believe that if you really do the proper presentation, meaning you have to lie a little which is fair in all elections). Now that will insure that the voter base will be enough to win the election and we have our new president. Otherwise let’s get ready for another four years after this and then who knows what will happen. It is possible that President O will have the legislation passed that will have unlimited terms, so he could be in for 20 years or till he dies. Hopefully the congress would not let that get by the American public. On the second question my answer is also quite simple. After living through 8 years of a really bad presidency of the W. man much of our population was mesmerized by the smooth talking new president and believed everything he said. They were ready for a change after the 8 years and believed he could change everything he said he could. Also, they listened to his first 90 days of speeches where he spent more time talking about how bad off the country was and how he was going to fix it that they really believed it. Now we are deeper in debt, unemployment is the highest in history and instead of getting out of Iraq as promised; we are now building up in Afghanistan. It reminds me of when I use to try to quit smoking (yes I did that nasty habit over 45 years ago). I would buy me some cigars, and a pipe hoping to cut out cigarettes. But what I would do is smoke all three of them. My own question on the Afghan thing is, what do we have after we win? Hope this clears up the many inquiries on the subject.

Movie Reviews: “This Is It”-This review will be handled in a little different way than most. While I will have 1-5 stars in the rating it will be based on you choosing your star determined by where you fit in the rating as presented. This movie is really not a movie but is filming of the rehearsals of the Michael Jackson movie, by the same name. It was not finished because of his death; however, they decided to organize the rehearsals and show it to the public. Again, making money off of him after his death but on the other hand showing some sides to him that may have been a surprise to some. Here goes: * it would be rated one star if you totally hated Michael Jackson, have no tolerance for him or his music and believed he was the biggest pervert that ever lived, ** it would be rated with two stars if the first star assumptions were how you use to feel but you might watch the rehearsal movie if it was free with fresh popcorn. ***, the three star rating is for the people who didn’t like Michael Jackson, didn’t care for his music, got a discount to see the movie, and bought your own popcorn, but came out of the movie with a greater appreciation of his music and what he did for Pop Music and how he appreciated, mentored and taught the younger people in this movie. ****, the four star rating is for those that loved his music, thought he was kind of weird but not a molester, or cared if he dyed himself white, loved to watch him dance, and believed he was the King of pop music. *****, the five star is for the fan that loved everything thing and every moment that Michael Jackson spent on this earth. This fan holds nothing back on how they feel and knows for sure that he was not weird, not a pervert, not a molester, and was without a doubt the King of Pop Music. NOTE: Please place me in the three star *** category.

“Men Who Stare At Goats”, *, A really bad movie and the one star comes only because of the good actors and fresh popcorn at discount prices. It is supposed to be a black comedy, I think, but comes off as boring, stupid, and a waste of time. Set in Iraq the movie centers on a reporter who thinks he’s stumbled on a huge story when he meets Lyn Cassady (George Clooney). The latter claims to be a former US psychic soldier who has been reactivated. Jeff Bridges co-stars as the founder of the psychic soldier program. This movie never makes sense. Rated R for language, some drug content and brief nudity.

“The Twilight Saga: New Moon”, ***, While I am not a vampire type movie fan I went out of curiosity. Well now I know, but I don’t really know why people like this. It has been stated that the biting of the vampire is somewhat sexual, so be it. This is a sequel and is a love story between a human teenager in high school with a vampire, also a high school student. These vampires are different since the whole town knows that they are blood suckers but they only suck animal blood, not human. So this makes it alright in the community. It is very good acting and lots of drama. The human girl is madly in love with the vampire but he wants to protect her so moves away. She goes through strange moods and wants him back. She also makes friends with a very well stacked guy who turns out to be a werewolf. The closing scene calls for a sequel, for sure. Rated PG-13 for some violence and action.

“2012”, **, this movie is another attempt of the end of the world theme. The two stars come from the visual effects, since it is way too long (2 hrs 50 minutes), very monotonous, the love story was very corny, and it just drug on and on. Rated PG-13 for intense disaster sequences and some language.

Rats!!! I need a good movie, so will go see “Blind Side” sometime this weekend.
